CSMG SIGNS 10-YEAR CONTRACT WITH DUPONT TO SUPPLY LANDFILL GAS.
CSMG Technologies owns the ASME-certified 177-metric-ton CO2 separator complex located at the landfill. The complex was developed to purify raw landfill gas to a quality acceptable for commercial pipelines or other gas customers.
The company owns the patents and all world rights to the patented CO2 separation technology, which processes low-quality raw landfill gas that is approximately 50% carbon dioxide and 50% methane into a usable commercial gas. The technology's efficiency is derived from an advanced technique for landfill gas, financed by the company and developed by the Ukrainian Scientific Institute. The technology absorbs carbon dioxide and other impurities from the gas without the use of filters or membranes that become clogged over time.
Unlike competing high-BTU landfill gas processing systems that require 4,000 to 6,000 cubic feet per minute (cfm) to be economically viable during a soft gas market, CSMG's CO2 separation technology requires 1,750 to 2,000 cfm to be economically viable in a soft gas market.
Donald S. Robbins, president and CEO of CSMG, said, "This contract marks a major milestone for our technology and the marketability of gas produced by our patented gas separation system. We are delighted to have DuPont as our commercial customer for our model plant. We believe this will be the first of many similar agreements in the coming months as the demand for 'green gas' and other renewable alternative energy sources continue to be strong."
DuPont sees benefits to the project as well. "This landfill gas project is one excellent example of how DuPont is engaging in innovative environmental projects," said Richard Perry, manager of DuPont's Mobile, Ala. plant. "At the same time, landfill gas will help us combat the rising cost of energy."
Purified gas generated by the technology may be sold to utility companies as well as other industry and commercial customers such as DuPont. There are approximately 18,000 landfills in the U.S. and Canada, of which about 20% would be capable of producing commercial grade gas using the company's technology.
CSMG owns the patents and all world rights to this patented technology. CSMG's proprietary CO2 separation production facility was manufactured by SUMY-FRUNZE Machine-Building Science and Production Association of Ukraine. SUMY-FRUNZE is a 106-year-old ISO 9001 heavy industrial equipment manufacturing company specializing in the oil, gas and chemical industries. FRUNZE employs approximately 20,000 people and regularly secures ASME and API industry certifications for its products.
CSMG has an exclusive agency agreement with FRUNZE for North America that covers the CO2 separators as well as a range of energy related industrial equipment, equipment planning, technical design and service equipment for oil and gas production and processing, refinery and other energy production purposes.
